This doesn't quite match the question.

All of these sources shows "Ida" being born about 1902. (Looks possibly like the same person in all sources.)

The OP asked for a marraige date of 1899 between Ida Turk and Richard Dowdall, having a child named Dorothy born in 1901. This means that Ida Turk has a birth year before 1883 (as a first order estimate).

Of course the more information, the better.

Allegheny Co., Marriage License No 24364: Richard residence NY b. Dec. 1861; Ida Turk born Brady's Bend PA, aged 28 (birth abt.1871)  Other records indicate he was born in Canada. I'ma not familiar with PA, but maybe the town clerk would have a birth record?

SOURCE: Pennsylvania, County Marriages, 1885-1950, database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VFMY-1Q4), Richard Dowdale and Ida Turk, 04 Jul 1899; citing Marriage, Pennsylvania, county courthouses, Pennsylvania; FHL microfilm 878,635.

The only other Ida Turk I could find born about this time was the dau. of William and Sarah Turk, but she married Edward Matson.
